The Craftsbury Green Racing Project (GRP) is now accepting applications for the 2012-13 training year. Space will be limited, but we hope to be able to add a few new members to the team. Applications are be due by March 22nd and decisions will be made by April 1 at the latest.
The Craftsbury Green Racing Project is enjoying another successful year, with a member on the USST B team, another member on the USBA World Cup squad, a second biathlete on the USBA U26 team, several top-10s and a podium at Nationals, SuperTour wins and podiums, and the Eastern Cup overall women’s winner to name a few highlights of the year thus far.
The GRP is a program of the Craftsbury Outdoor Center, a non-profit organization whose mission is:
1) to support and promote participation and excellence in lifelong sports with a special focus on rowing, running and nordic skiing;
2) to use and teach sustainable practices; and
3) to protect and manage the surrounding land, lake and trails.
In exchange for coaching, travel support, room & board, GRP skiers are asked to take on projects that contribute to work of the Center. GRP projects in the past have included: ski trail mapping and improvements, construction of single-track trails, coaching of youth and junior skiers, outreach to area schools, growing vegetables for the Dining Hall, designing and building a compost system for the Center, construction of a stone/brick pizza and bread oven, organization of events and programs at the Center, design of the GRP website and clothing, blogging and writing articles, helping develop a regional trail system, and working to bring more local food into the Center’s Dining Hall.
